Join expert Jon M. Huntsman, Jr, former US Ambassador to Russia, China and Singapore, in the national conversation of US-China relations!

Jon Huntsman, Jr. began his career in public service as a staff assistant to President

He has been a visiting fellow at the Kennedy School of Government, and a

are the parents of seven children, including two adopted daughters from China and India.
Huntsman is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and has ten honorary doctoral
degrees.
